Summary:

Researchers say "there's no down side" to use a pest-resistant organic fungicide to control the flies that pollinate roses in the home. Homeowners in southeastern Illinois have been spraying the fungicide in their houseplant pots to control a disease that is spreading in the U.S. There was no evidence that the organic fungicide harmed the indoor plants, which received good water and feeding from the homeowners.
